Here is a description from her:
"My name is Peyton Weiss and I'm the behind the scenes artist. My interest and love of art and nature began at a very young age. I was inspired by a Montessori teacher who at the time, dabbled with a very simplified version of leaf art. The concept of using leaves and flowers to create beautiful pictures of animals was so intriguing!!
I have now spent nearly eight years experimenting and perfecting my art; going far beyond my original inspiration. My family and I now make annual trip up North where I gather and press an abundance of leaves to be used for future creations.The variety of animals I create is continually growing. Some additions to my collection this year are a sheep, an elephant, and an owl. My leaf art is one of my many joys and passions in life and I love being able to share it with others."
That's right, Peyton's passion is leaf crafting and here is a sample of her unique handiwork:
And some more:
